OUR HISTORY

   In 1985, Elliott Hunter founded Elliott Hunter & Associates in historic Carthage, Missouri. Jeff Millard, an associate since 1987, became a partner and a second Principal Architect for the firm in 2002. To reflect this change, the firm updated its name to Hunter & Millard Architects, Inc. and shortly after relocated the office to Joplin, Missouri. 


   In 2018, Hunter & Millard began overseeing restorations to an early twentieth-century building at the southwest corner of 15th & Main Street in the center of Joplin, MO, to use as its permanent headquarters. This larger space is allowing the firm to continue to grow and develop to better serve each of our clients.

OUR APPROACH TO DESIGN

   Hunter & Millard Architects, Inc. is a full service architectural firm with extensive experience in the design and planning of cultural, educational, medical, hospitality, and commercial projects. While our projects vary in size, scope, and complexity, we pride ourselves on a design excellence that does not adhere to a just one style, but focuses on being sensitive to the needs of each individual program. Our approach to the design process synthesizes creative thinking with rational, real world solutions. We focus on delivering our clients a product that is aesthetically pleasing, while remaining cost-efficient. At Hunter & Millard, design is what we do, and it is our job to make our clients’ vision a reality.  ​
